However, in GEORGE VEENKER his first year he brought them1 home second in the then Big Six Conference. The highlight of his career, from the standpoint of some fans, was the 31 - 6 trouncing his Cyclones handed Iowa's Hawkeyes In 1934. It was the last meeting between the two elubs. He became athletic director in! 1936 with a record of 21 victories, 22 defeats and seven ties. While athletic director, Veenker was instrumental in the purchase and construction of the 18 - hole Iowa State University golf course. A movement was underway prior to his death to have the college golf course named in his honor. 1945 saw Veenker retired to a small acreage near Ames and later he moved to Arkansas. In recent years, he resided in Malta, 1., the hometown of his wife. At the time - of Veenker's retire ment, he was the National Collegiate Athletic Association fifth district representative on the national football rules committee.

DEITZEL Head Football Coach, LSU Written for UPI BATON ROUGE, La. (UPI) - This series' of dispatches will be an entirely new venture for me. The idea of writing a newspaper series is something that had nev er occurred to me. However, if I am to discuss football then I think it only fitting and proper to explain the position coaches take on lhe subject of football. Why play football, anyway? Perhaps it is very strange for a coach to even mention the question, "why play football?" However, inasmuch as this hap pens to he a coach's means of making a living, I think that he should be ii a position and be prepared to answer this question Personally, it is very simple for me to answer this question. Foot ball is the reason, that I was able to secure a college education the first place. Football ; is the only reason that 1 ever dreamed of going to college and it is the one thing that has given me anything that T have achieved, however small or large it may be. A Two - Fisted Challenge During my career in the coaching ranks, I have had the oppor tunity to travel about the country to visit in homes of many prospective athletes. Through this par ticular media, many young men ave been afforded an opportunity .to secure an education. These same young men might never have had an opportunity to get an education were' it not for athletics. It is an old idea, of course, that excellence in any field should be rewarded, be it athletics, music, English, or physics. Perhaps I can best explain what I mean by attempting to elaborate on what I think are the most prominent reasons for big time college football in these United States. The mere fact that football is one of the few real two - fisted con tact sports that we still have left in this country is, of course, a very good reason for continuing the game. Personal Merit Counts discussing intercollegiate football, an army general, made famous in Korea, reiterated these same words. He stated that his only problem with former athletes was to "hold them back bv the shirt tail." Many of the young men who had been brilliant students but nothing else were more interested in looking up the "correct procedures" when details for the day called for leadership by But even a bigger reason for our concern is that we prlvide an emotional outlet by enabling a boy to partake in athletics rather than the hot rod, tavern type life. Mv own thinking has perhaps been colored by the fact that I have always personally felt that it was a challenge for a boy to deter mine whether he had enough courage to be an athlete. On an athletic field each per son is judged on personal merit rattier tnan on whether the pocket - book or social prestige of his family places him at some particular niche. On the football field, everyone is broke. It is perhaps one of trie best tests of personal ability that we have.

As graceful in defeat as he has been in victory in nine of the last 10 years, Stengel predicted that the White Sox would succeed the Yankees as world champions "providing their pitching holds up." Stengel made the prediction upon learning that the White Sox' 3 - 2 victory over the Athletics Tuesday night had eliminated the Yankees from pennant contention.
